Director, Revenue Training and Enablement

Vox Media, New York Office

Shaping the future of journalism and entertainment

Vox Media employees thrive on innovation and change while ambitiously seeking to master their subject areas, hone their craft, and improve their communities. We help smart, talented, creative professionals make a meaningful impact in media, technology and the world around them. The Vox Media house of brands includes industry-leading media forces like SB Nation, Eater, The Verge, Vox, Curbed, Recode, Racked and Polygon, and reaches an audience of hundreds of millions, generating over a billion content views each month.       

As the Director of Learning and Development, you will be charged with training our sales, marketing, and support teams not to be sellers, producers or account managers, but to be ambassadors of Vox Media. You will be expected to use your expertise and knowledge to design, implement, and maintain the first holistic training and enrichment curriculum for our sales force. From new hires to continued education to vertical expertise, it will be your responsibility to create engaging, digestible learning experiences that not only result in competency, but natural fluency. You’ll serve as the arbiter of industry news and perspectives to the revenue organization. And as our business changes, your system will be flexible to incorporate new offerings or changing priorities. Ultimately, it is through your methodology that our revenue force will be able to drive increased business results through their deep knowledge, empowerment, and dynamism.

The ideal candidate will have experience designing and delivering new hire induction programs as well as continued education specifically for sales and marketing organizations. You are passionate about teaching, enriching others with knowledge. You love collaborative environments and love to learn yourself. You recognize that there may not be a one-size-fits all approach to education, but strive to find diverse solutions. You understand that innovation and iteration are keys success.

  • Communicate and educate around industry trends, perspectives, and news
  • Liaison with the Vox Media People and Culture team and work in collaboration with that organization on larger learning and development goals
